The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Watch out he bites!

Whether you’re team Edward or team Jacob; or maybe you just don’t care? Whatever your choice the Twilight cast are back with their third instalment of the series, Eclipse.

 Bella (Kristin Stewart) once again finds herself surrounded by danger (she seems to have a habit of doing this) as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and malicious vampire, Victoria, continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner), knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the feud between vampire and werewolf.

 From watching the previous Twilight films and reading all the books I did query how they could fit so much detail into a two hour film. The end result was a film very quick to cram in crucial detail and rush to the end, eagerly jumping at the next chapter in the story. I felt Jacob and his tribe weren’t given as much depth in the film as they did in the book. Also at times I found myself cringing during the romantic love scenes between Edward and Bella as they proclaimed their ever dying and ever lasting love for each other! They are only teenagers! Well Edward is slightly older in attitude if you include all those vampire years.

 However, even though I did find it rushed and a bit corny, I did enjoy it and thought the actions scenes were incredible to watch as they were shot brilliantly; especially the overhead shots of the Forks location. Anyone who has followed the films or the books, it is inevitable – you will and have to go see it. After all you are closer to finding out the question of everyone’s lips; Jacob or Edward?

Me? I defiantly prefer Jacob – he may be a bit young for me but who’s complaining? Not with a body like that! Then again that might be the other reason so many people flock to see it…
